Based on the molecule (A) shown below (bromine on C1 and chlorine on C5), answer the following questions.
a) Draw the flipped chair conformation (B) of the molecule (A). Which one is more stable? Why (the name of specific interaction?
b) Draw all other possible configurational isomers of (A) below. Bromine should be placed always in the axial
position. In addition, circle “cis” or “trans” for each isomer and “R” or “S” for C1 and C5 configuration.
c) Please circle the relationship(s) below between those chair conformations you drew in (b)?
Enantiomers, Diastereomers, Constitutional isomers, Conformational isomers
